Last week, Sky released the first still images of the cast of Speravo De Mori Prima, the six-part miniseries that chronicles the final days of Francesco Totti's playing career. Described as a dramedy, the series isn't directly produced by Totti, but based on the press released by SKY over the past several weeks and months, it appears as though he was, at the very least, consulted along the way. This new TV series, taken with his autobiography and the recently released documentary Mi Chiamo Francesco Totti, has given Roma's former captain quite the robust multimedia platform.
And with the series set to debut on March 19th, Sky released the first official trailer today.

With even a modest understanding of Italian, one can tell that this miniseries will have a nice balance of levity, drama, and, based on the varying Totti hairstyles, a fair bit of nostalgia. If we can figure out a way to (legally) view this state-side, we'll drop an episode-by-episode review.
Either way, if the still images piqued your interest last week, this trailer should have sealed the day—this looks very interesting.
